We are proud to represent the work of this amazing artist from Southern Africa. He creates these one-of-a-kind light fixtures; by collecting naturally tumbled pieces of glass, driftwood, shells and found objects from our beaches. There is no limit to size, shape, structure and texture. Most recently he created some unique lighting fixtures made from wood as well as beads.

This was a short trip only 8 days in total. Spent two nights in Nairobi and recommend you avoid staying over there if you can. Not because there is anything wrong with Nairobi, other than the traffic, it's a nightmare you can easily spent 30 minutes in one place without moving a cm in any direction. I was accompanied on this trip by 6 friends, 3 from South Africa, one from Los Angeles, one from Switzerland and another from Italy. We arrived at our hotel in Nairobi on the outskirts of town, showered and spent 2 hours in traffic for a 20 minute drive to the famous Muthaiga Country Club here we met two friends that are members. Here the colonial settlers partied until the early morning hours the place is steeped in history. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muthaiga_Country_Club

In post - Renaissance Europe, Kuba Cloth, the embroidered and appliqué decorated raffia cloth from the Congo (formerly Zaire), entered the curio cabinets and treasuries of nobles and kings as the finest representation of African art. More recently, the mastery of Kuba cloths' abstract patterning was a source of inspiration to artists such as Matisse, who displayed part of his large collection on the wall of his studio. www.phasesafrica.com directly trade with the Congo's most renowned source on Kuba and Shoowa Cloth.
